DESCRIPTION

A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM

Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim       Book by Burt Shevelove & Larry Gelbart

Sondheim's joyous musical romp through Rome has desperate lovers, scheming Neighbors and secrets behind every toga!

January 22 - February 7, 2021 - SELECT DATES

After establishing himself as a top-notch lyricist with WEST SIDE STORY and GYPSY, Stephen Sondheim created his first work as both lyricist and composer with this tribute to the classic Roman comedies of Plautus performed in a style that was part Vaudeville, part Burlesque and totally hilarious!  Pseudolus is a slave who is determined to win his freedom.  To accomplish this, he employs every stratagem at his disposal to win the perfect mate for his master (Hero).  It turns out that Hero's "perfect mate" is a virginal young courtesan names Philia  This entails keeping the girl's virtue safe from Hero's lecherous father, a pompous Captain named Miles Gloriosus, Erronius (a doddering old man who's afraid of ghosts) and Lycus, the proprietor of the local brothel.  The show features such early Sondheim standards as "Comedy Tonight,"  "Impossible,"  "I'm Calm,"  "That'll Show him," "Pretty Little Picture," and "Everybody Ought to Have a Maid."  Don't miss this musical that truly lives up to its name!
